Senior executives from the electric utilities, energy ministries, regulatory authorities and private sector from Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda took part in a workshop focusing on strategies for clean energy deployment in East Africa.  Delegates identified best practices for deploying clean energy technologies given financial constraints.

The Workshop on Clean Energy Development Strategies in East Africa was organised and conducted by the US Energy Association (USEA), the WEC’s US national committee, in cooperation with the East African Community, the regional intergovernmental organisation, on behalf of the US Agency for International Development (USAID).

It is part of the ongoing Energy Utility Partnership Program (EUPP) through a Cooperative Agreement between USAID and the USEA. The EUPP is intended to assist developing countries with implementing environmentally sustainable power generation resources, improving operational efficiency, and enhancing financial viability of utilities and related institutions.  As part of the workshop, 34 delegates met with clean energy experts from around the world, including electric utilities, consulting firms, government agencies and financial institutions.
